Portsea's location at the tip of the Mornington Peninsula means you can cool off at a safe bay beach and be riding the surf at the ocean beach just minutes later. Slow down after a day out in the water with an evening with friends on the green lawns of the Portsea Pub. Learn to scuba dive amid sea dragons and rays around Portsea Pier. Experienced divers can explore the reef system to the left of the pier, or venture by boat to outlying reefs and historic wrecks, like the former warship HMAS Canberra. Trade bathers for hiking boots and set off on the 100-kilometre Mornington Peninsula Walk, or try out one of the shorter stints into Point Nepean. Take in peaceful bays, wild coastlines, tranquil bush, native animals and important Victorian history.
